Created by and with thanks to That Artsy Reader! This week’s post is a love letter to the March Madness I ran this year, where my blog and Instagram followers picked my April TBR. A risky experiment; let’s see how it paid off!
1. Chain of Iron by Cassandra Clare
This is my current read: I’ve been anticipating it for over a year, and it is not disappointing! More on this in a Gush to come…
3. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
I almost feel like this is an Austen cult classic, and I find that–and the story behind the book–fascinating. I did enjoy it, and it was so nice to delve back into Gothic fiction, in any capacity. But if we’re talking Austen favourites… Will anything beat Pride and Prejudice? Not this!
4. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Oh, Oreos and Golden Retrievers and all that’s good in this world, I cannot think of enough gushing things to say about Simon. It has everything I love: musical theatre, Goldens, Oreos, snark, adorkable friendship ensembles, music, mysterious romantic identities, and romance so fluffy I have to hug the book before I put it back down. I don’t understand what took me so long to read it–I loved it.
Those are my five most recent reads! What are yours?
